Welcome, I'm Sarah, a registered Nutritional Therapist based in Wilmslow and Macclesfield, Cheshire and I help individuals take control of their health with diet and lifestyle.
My health struggles initiated my journey to becoming a Nutritional Therapist and I am dedicated to helping others understand what foods are appropriate for their own health and needs.
I offer one to one consultations in person and online and work by investigating the root causes of your symptoms and identifying potential imbalances that may affect processes in the body, which can contribute to symptoms and ultimately disease.
I work to support chronic conditions, optimize health and focus on prevention.
To help investigate the root causes, I assess your health and symptoms, diet, family health history, gastric function, sleep, lifestyle, environmental factors and genetic predisposition.
You are unique and your responses to foods and the environment demonstrates to me how your bodily systems are working and the impact they are having on each other. This combined with scientific research enables me, in partnership with you, to design a nutrition and lifestyle plan that is tailored to your specific health and needs.
Available for 75 mins or 2 hrs
A detailed pre-consultation questionnaire will be sent to you, in addition to a food and lifestyle diary.
This session will enable me to understand your background and unique situation and will provide us with an opportunity to construct a foundation that we continue to progress upon each time we meet.
I also use functional testing, based on blood, urine, saliva and stool samples, and supplementation if required.
Follow-up consultations allow us to review the initial program, evaluate any test results if applicable and further design and implement the updated programmes.
